Library Construction Campus Impact

August 21, 2017:

Construction prep will begin Monday, August 21st on the west side of Neilson Library and all sides of Alumnae Gym including the removal of some large, but replaceable trees.  The Botanic Garden was brought in early in the planning of this work and steps were taken to protect, relocate, and donate as many plants as possible. Our most valuable trees, including our state champion dawn redwood and European linden are well protected.

Planning is underway to replace lost taxa and the new landscape is being crafted both to complement the reconstructed library and meet the needs of the Botanic Garden.
